Your dentist, Dr. Jeffrey Falduto, wants you to have the top-notch oral health and smile you deserve. One way of achieving those goals is to clean and care for your teeth. In order to do so, you need to know all about teeth. So, our dentist is happy to teach you all about teeth by sharing some teeth facts. Those facts are:

-There are different parts of a tooth, including the crown, enamel, dentin, pulp and tooth root. Your teeth are very resilient. In fact, they are considered the strongest bones in the body.

-There are many different types of teeth in your mouth, like the incisors, canines, premolars and molars. Each tooth has its own job, like cutting food, tearing food, crushing food and grinding or chewing food.

-Unfortunately, there are many things that threaten to harm the teeth regularly. Some of those things are plaque, bacteria, unnatural pressure and acid. They can cause cavities, tooth cracks and fractures and even enamel erosion.

-It’s important to keep your teeth in tip-top shape by brushing them every morning and night and flossing and rinsing them daily. It’s also vital to receive a dental cleaning and exam every six months.
